    I'm suprised no one has mentioned Brian Sanderson's work yet. I'm not a huge fantasy fan (I'm really more of a sci-fi guy), but I was totally taken in by Sanderson's Elantris, so I checked out his Mistborn Trilogy and was NOT disappointed. My H/H Fantasy list looks something like this:

    Elantris by Brian Sanderson
    Mistborn Trilogy by Brian Sanderson (The Final Empire, Well of Ascension, Hero of Ages)
    The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
    Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind
    Legend by David Gemmell
    Hour of the Dragon by Robert E. Howard
    The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
    Heirs of Ash Trilogy by Rich Wulf (Voyage of the Mourning Dawn, Flight of the Dying Sun, Rise of the Seventh Moon)
    Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

    I know that’s only nine, but the only other name that immediately spang to mind was Simon Hawke’s Reluctant Sorcerer trilogy, which is much more parody than HF.

    I also recommend David Gemmell’s Troy Series (Lord of the Silver Bow, Shield of Thunder, Fall of Kings) but I’d classify that as quasi-historical fiction and not really HF per se.

    Aside from what's there, I guess I could add The Elenium and Tamuli series by David Eddings. Like the Belgariad and Malloreon they go together.

    Don't know either. High fantasy should take place in an secondary world. The Stand is is set in the primary world right? If the others think it should be in, than i'll put it in.

    Star Wars is awesome, but it's science fiction not fantasy i think.

    the thing about the belgariad and mallorian, they're so tightly written that it's really hard to read one without the others.

    for example, i tried to read book 1 of the mallorian, and just couldn't get into it, until i read teh belgariad first.

    I think it'd be like reading return of the king without reading the first book.

    O.k we can do series. I first thought the individual books, because in some series the books can be of different quality. But maybe series is better.
